You may recall that I was very skeptical regarding John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate. My initial reaction was that, from his standpoint, that decision was a mistake. So far, at least, she seems to be proving me wrong.
There appears to be a consensus that she handled herself well in TV interviews this week with ABC's Charles Gibson. Those were her biggest media exposure, so far, outside of the formal speech format.
I'm sure there will be more interest in this year's vice-presidential debate, than there has been in prior election years, since those debates began in 1976.
The contrast between the male, older, experienced Washington hand, and the younger female outsider, will be interesting.
